Two NSAD Alumni Involved in San Diego Airport Public Art Project Developed by Designer Miki Iwasaki

San Diego—January 26, 2012—Miki Iwasaki, who has taught at the NewSchool of Architecture and Design (NSAD) as an adjunct faculty member, recently completed a motion sensor-equipped public art project at the San Diego International Airport. Iwasaki, an artist and designer, credits the project’s success to teamwork, including the contributions of two NSAD alumni: Matthew Greco, who graduated with a Master of Architecture in 2011, and Kent Coston, who graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture in 1998.

“The lessons I would share with other architecture and design students would be that all projects are team projects, and you will always encounter unexpected issues,” said Iwasaki. “You can always look back and say things could have been better, but don’t let that prevent you or paralyze you from aspiring to bring your vision to life.”
